Jonathan Edwards on Colossians 3:2 – Don’t Set Your Minds on the Things Below

“I never knew before what was meant by not setting our hearts upon these things [of the world]. ‘Tis, not to care about them, to depend upon them, to afflict ourselves much with fears of losing them, nor please ourselves with expectation of obtaining them, or hope of the continuance of them.”

(From Edwards’ diary, 1/10/1723)
